Re: [SNOW] The Winter 2012/2013 Thread

With the climate in overdrive, I'm thinking one of these Winters in the near future may even induce Glenn to wish for Spring.

Perhaps we're due for a 3 or 4 footer? Hmmm...

When it comes to weather, we only have one certainty -- that areas that are prone to extensive weather issues (like lower Manhattan) will have done nothing to prevent future dilemmas. Our planning for the future as a populace is roughly 8 or 10 hours in advance. Then the response is "Run for your lives!!!"

I have to side with the weather wags when they tell us "Flood controls designed for the 20th century are not appropriate for the 21st." Do tell...

Apologies for the negative. Intended more as sarcastic, not that sarcasm is much better.

Well, much to the dismay of many in this forum... I'm kinda hoping for a whopper so I can get some seat time on that new snow thrower I bought.

My first snow blower usage was only 4 or 5 years ago. I'm standing here, and the snow is going 20 or 30' over there -
what's not to like about that?

One little caveat - it's almost always windy just after a snow storm.
One day of post storm calm would be nice to keep the snow out of our faces, but Mother Nature thinks otherwise.

I'll never forget one day while blowing snow, the boss and family arrived. I opened the back hatch of their car to unload and said "Hello." The kids just looked at me, and said nothing. A fully iced beard and mirrored glacier shades perhaps? I guess they thought Admiral Byrd had risen from the dead to blow their driveway.
